The Great Global Warming Blunder

The evidence of the great global warming hoax keeps piling up and this new book by Roy Spencer collects much of it in one place. I’m proud to say that I never for one minute believed the hype that human activity was causing global warming. The idea just seemed too preposterous to take seriously, but…

The Financial Meltdown Began With Democrats — Not Wall Street

All during 2004-2006 The Wall Street Journal was warning of the impending disaster and reporting the financial shenanigans of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which were under the control of top Democrats from the Clinton Administration, Franklin Raines, James Johnson and Jamie Gorelick. These Dems took millions in compensation while at the same time cooking…

Crony Capitalism — Gangster Government — Fascism

Adam Smith wrote in The Wealth of Nations (1776) that, People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.

Update on CCW Improvements in Iowa

I reported on the passage with wide margins in both houses on an improvement of CCW in Iowa here. As of now there is still no word on whether Governor Culver, a Democrat, will sign it. He’s up for re-election in 2010 so you’d think he would, but he’s hasn’t yet and he’s had it…

Can A Nation That Elects A Black President Still Be Called Racist?

No. The election of Barack Obama makes nonsense of claims that we are a racist nation. That’s a big problem for Democrats because Democrats need racism for political reasons. Democrats need Black people to believe that racism is rampant to keep them voting for Democrats because without the over 90% Black vote they have had…

Pew Survey Bad News For Democrats

A new Pew Research Poll has Democrats losing Independents. This is astounding because Independents have often cut to the Democrats by a 2/3 or more margin. I’ve always thought that people who register as Independent are really Democrats who want to feel chic or are just too ashamed to admit to being a Democrat. “The…
